The Cottagers currently sit at the foot of the Premier League after a disastrous campaign, with the German coach now the third man to have taken charge of the club this term.
Cardiff are directly above in 19th, and with ten games to go many have suggested that the loser of this game may be unable to steer clear of the drop.
Magath has a history of saving teams from relegation, but he has already insisted that his role at Fulham is a difficult one despite the Londoners’ huge investment in January.
However, the Craven Cottage chief does not feel that Saturday’s result will be a decider in their battle:
“Not if I look at the schedule.” He is quoted as saying when asked if the Cardiff game was a must win by The Express.
“We have a good schedule for the last 10 games, because most of the teams that play in the Champions League we have played, except Manchester City.
“So I think we have a good schedule for the last weeks.
“I get the feeling here that everybody knows that and everybody sleeps well with the knowledge that there are games ahead of us that we can win.”
